U.S. criticizes China's handling of Snowden case

Washington (CNN) - U.S. officials have told Chinese officials that they're disappointed with the way China and Hong Kong handled the case of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

President Barack Obama expressed "disappointment and concern" over the matter during an Oval Office meeting with Chinese officials on Thursday, the White House said.

    China does not care how the Whitehouse feels. They have the US loans. They could call them all in. Then what?

    There is a lot wrong China did with the Snowden case. If they had held him until everything was done in the US, then there would be less of a problem. It would also be nice if Snowden would have balls enough to face a court.

    Say, Barry, check your history of the Bush Years (that would be W, not HW) and read about the episode where China knocked our spy plane out of the air. Supposedly, it was over International Waters. They held our crew hostage until Bush said we were "very sorry" for the death of the Chinese pilot who hit our plane, also for the (crippled) spy plane's landing on Hainan without permission. And, we paid hostage fees, allegedly for room and board for the crew.

    So, Barry, what do you expect China to do regarding an American giving info about our electronic spying on them, and the rest of the entire planet? In case you haven't figured it out yet, they don't really like us.
